About this Holiday House

Manorburn Cottage is in a lovely peaceful country setting right beside the rail trail only a 6km car ride to Alexandra. Enjoy a morning coffee sitting out on the lawn overlooking the orchard watching the bikers going down the trail. The Manorburn Dam is just up the hill where you can kayak or swim in the summer or enjoy ice skating and curling in the winter. Try your luck at fishing on the Dam or in the Manorburn stream also a great spot to keep young ones entertained, the stream runs alongside the property. There is T.V and DVD so movies can be watched, but the setting of this cottage keeps you well entertained, there are plenty of books and games to while away the evenings. Being 1 hour from Queenstown you are well placed to enjoy the many tourist attractions on offer there and to access the ski fields open between June and early October. Wanaka is 50mins away. Lake Dunstan offers a great playground for the keen boaties or for the jetboats the clutha river is awesome to check out. The Highlands park Motor Sport at Cromwell is 25mins. away.

Fantastic jogging on the rail trail, flying fox over the stream, swimming & kayaking (own Kayak) bmx track and awesome trail bike tracks. There is an abundance of old fashioned roses and an organic orchard producing peaches, cherries, pears, apples, greengages and plums along with raspberries, blackberries and blackcurrants.

A family of wild Quail take up residence around the house grounds in the summer.

Close to Alexandra, ride down the tree lined drive and you are on the rail trail. 1 hour from Queenstown where two ski fields are open from June until end of September. Visit the local wineries and orchards. Alexandra has an 18 hole golf course, Aquatic Centre, tennis courts and lovely cafes & shops to browse in. A river trail for walking or biking follows the Clutha river from Alexandra to the historic township of Clyde. A 40min. bike ride down the rail trail brings you to the quaint Chatto Creek Hotel where you can enjoy a beer, wine or meal sitting in the lovely sun garden. We recommend the Sea food Chowder.

WE HAD ANOTHER GREAT STAY AT MANORBURN, LOVELY LOCATION, PEACEFUL AND RELAXING FOR ALL.
KathyHG
Very peaceful spot and comfortable house. Kids loved having a bash at badminton on the lawn and going up the road for a dip in the dam. Great being close to Alex for groceries, cafes and vineyard wine tasting. The rail trail is just in front of the house too so an easy bike to Alex.
Adam McGregor
great wee spot just out of town. Comfortable casual set up. They let us take 2 dogs and property is perfect for dogs outside. Thanks Donna, would definitely rent again. Cheers adam
